The temple of Agios Georgios at Assaris belongs to a small monastery, now a dependency of Panagia Faneromeni monastery. This is a single-aisled vaulted church and bears frescoes of the 14th and 15th century with the iconographic program based on the Christological cycle and the cycle of St. George. The Marian cycle is represented by only two performances: the Presentation of the Virgin to the Temple, and the Assumption of the Virgin. There is also the Assumption of St. Ephraim the Syrian on the western part of the vault.
